I picked up two paintings Monday from Newburyport Art Association and brought two for the next show. It is a juried show, so let's see what gets in! I had one of those last-minute frame problems. I couldn't get one on-line quick enough because of the holiday and didn't have enough molding left to make one. The size I wanted, 9x12", isn't a popular size at any of the usual frame shops, but I found only one at Michael's and it was dark, so I painted the interior border to match the painting, and it came out really nice. I saw this done recently at the Rockport Show. I didn't take photos of either painting before delivering them, boy am I slipping.
One was a landscape, 8x10", of the pump on the common at West Newbury, MA. It is actually the second of a series of three pump paintings I've been working on. The other painting, 9x12" was done on a rainy day at Cox Reservation in Ipswich, MA. It is completely en plein air, no touchup.
